It's midnight and she standing on the corner
Her time is money and that's fucking up the order
That's right she's crossing all the borders
Standing in the shadows
There's nothing else for her
She doesn't know if she's gonna make it through the night
She don't care - she's sick and tired of this life
A car rolls up so she shakes her ass
The best she can
5:00 AM in Gould's they found her stuffed in a garbage can
Are you gonna play the roles
Society wrote for you?
Are you gonna play the roles?
Don't play the roles
Never play the roles
He never felt right
Holding down a 9-5
It made the ends meet
But it never made him feel alive
He filled his house with everything that he could buy
Buy but more the possessions filled his house
The emptier he felt inside
And then he cracked
He's in a world
That all his own
He left it all his friends his family and his home
It's dark outside
Now it's cold it's raining and the wind is blowing
Living in a cardboard shack it's the only thing
He calls his own
Are you gonna play the roles
Society wrote for you?
Are you gonna play the roles?
Don't play the roles
Don't play the roles
Never play the roles
